Steelers center Pouncey still expects to play in Super Bowl

DALLAS (AP) -- Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey sat out practice Wednesday but still expects to play in the Super Bowl.

Pouncey sustained a high left ankle sprain in the AFC championship game. He hopes to practice Friday and reiterated that his chances of playing against the Green Bay Packers are 75 percent.

The only teammate listed on the injury report is Aaron Smith, who was limited by a triceps problem.

Green Bay outside linebacker Frank Zombo, who missed the last six games with an injured right knee, fully participated in practice. Another linebacker, Erik Walden, was limited after hurting his ankle in the NFC title game.

Also limited for the Packers: tackle Chad Clifton (knees) and offensive lineman Jason Spitz (calf).
